The book on "SORPTION &
BIOSORPTION" (2003) provides the backbone and a textbook
for seminars and workshops on the topic. It summarizes the key
information that has been accumulated over the past two decades of
The book normally costs US$ 125 but it is provided with a
special discount (~30%) at workshops. It is highly recommended for the event
audience to follow the presentations.
The sorption operation is capable of
removing and isolating specific chemical species from solution and
as such it provides a basis for very effective technological
applications. Methodologies developed and established for
examining conventional sorption processes can be used to study and
develop biosorption – and vice versa. From this point of view,
this whole book can be considered to be a one large case study
focusing on heavy metal biosorption. All the principles dealt
with in the text (and presentations) are directly applicable in many
broad aspects of various sorption and ion-exchange operations
encountered in different industrial activities.
||Bohumil Volesky is the
President and Founder of BV SORBEX, Inc., an enterprise focusing
on sorption and biosorption technology and its promotion. He
is also a Professor of Chemical Engineering at McGill University in
Montreal, Canada, active in areas of Biochemical Engineering and
Industrial Water Pollution Control. He has authored or coauthored
close to 200 scientific papers and presented many invited lectures
at international scientific meetings and seminars or workshops
around the world. |

Dr. Volesky earned his PhD in Biochemical
Engineering at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario,
Canada. His research interests are reflected in his earlier
books on "Biosorption of Heavy Metals" (1990, CRC Press, Boca Raton,
Florida) that he edited, and in a co-authored volume on "Modeling
and Optimization of Fermentation Processes" (1992, Elsevier Science
Publishers, Amsterdam, The Netherlands)
/ WORKSHOPS :
SEMINAR presentations or half-day and full-day
WORKSHOPS can be organized at any location anywhere in the
world. These events can be held at institutions, as parts of
conference programs or before/after conferences.
The choice of exact
topics can be negotiated (please consult the book topics) depending
on the interest of the audience.
The presentations can
have emphasis on chemistry, biology or process engineering including
the contemporary computer simulation techniques used for sorption
processes. We explain and bring you the power of FEMLAB sorption simulation
program - it can do even more for you.
We collaborate on arrangements for
funding the event(s) providing a grant application
outline for interested groups. See the details of seminar
topics (click) - do not hesitate and be dynamic ...
